Calendar Girls: November challenge

Hello friends and followers,
I just finished this easel cards tonight, literally minutes ago!
It is for the November Calendar Girls' group challenge.

In Jeanette's own word- she's our wonderful leader and organizer of our group -                   here's her challenge :

"... Because we post on the 28th, the end of the month... and most of us will be in Christmas mode... how about if we post a Christmas card for our November posting? That should be easy, since we are probably all making a Christmas card or two anyway. I also think it might be fun to post a picture of our workdesk/space with all of its creating clutter... you know, the Christmas cardmaking frenzy in all its messiness..." 

YIKES!!! did you READ that?? I am the undiscussed queen of clutter..*sigh*...and, as I told ya above...I JUST finished making the card so, of course my space is utterly messy and in total disarrey!!:/    ok ...I wil take a deep deep breath and take the plunge to post those photo of my creative messiness....(and yes it WIL BE CLEANED UP before I go to bed!)

Card  Deets: 'Wreath Stamp' by Inkadinkado # 99446 DD 'Winter Wonderland' sentiment from Paper Salon           Card Stocks all from SU Designer Paper 'Eskimo Kisses' from Basic Gray/// Accessories: Fancy Tags, Plain Round nesties, Eyelet Circled nesties,rhynestones from Kaiser, Lily White glitter,micro fine red glitter                                                                                                                                 

  And now to the worst possible pictures ...and don't tell me YOU weren't warned!!
By the way...I must add that it's even messier than usual 'cause I am in the midst of doing some
stamps' inventory as my DH just opened my new BS tonight as there is LOTS of extras on my table tonight....yikess... HERE GOES NUTTING>>>>

Now I can go in my hiding me back when this is OVER!!! LOL
